Make a memorable day at the Sturgis Rally totally unforgettable by joining the Legends Lunch, held just before the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s signature charity ride, the Legends Ride. While riders stage for the Ride in the historic town of Deadwood on Monday, Aug. 9, a small group of fortunate individuals will join the Chip’s owner, Rod Woodruff, plus notables of stage, screen and racetrack for an intimate gourmet meal and program.

This multi-course gourmet luncheon takes place in a private, relaxed setting at the Historic Franklin Hotel’s Legends Steakhouse, a restaurant known for its culinary prowess. It is open this day only to serve this select group for this exclusive insiders’ mix and mingle. 

Inspiration and entertainment accompany lunch, first with words from Carlos Moleda, a man of unyielding spirit and drive. Wounded while serving as a Navy SEAL, Moleda turned misfortune into a testament to persistence by reaching the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro and becoming a champion in several athletic realms. He was named the Ironman Hall of Fame 2021 inductee.

Next, the very memorable Horny Mike from History Channel’s “Counting Cars” and Las Vegas-based Count’s Kustoms, takes you on a vicarious stroll through a typical day-in-the-life – which, as he interfaces with an eclectic cast of co-workers in the wizard’s workshops at Count’s Kustoms, is monumentally distinctive from the way most of us spend a workday.

Once the Lunch wraps up, attendees enjoy photo ops with the celebrities. Next, Horny Mike will meet and greet fans in Outlaw Square to showcase the results of his just-released pandemic-fueled design: the 3-D printed “Jaw Dropper” custom motorcycle, a machine unlike anything the world has ever seen on two wheels.

Better still, the Legends Lunch benefits a very worthy cause: the Shriners Children’s Transportation Fund, which transports children and a parent or guardian free of charge to a Shriners Hospital. When a child’s life hangs in the balance money should not be an obstacle.

The Legends Lunch is the nexus of motorcycle notables, compelling story and gracious philanthropy. Don’t miss this exclusive experience – reserve now before space sells out!

MEET HORNY MIKE

HISTORY'S "COUNTING CARS"
COUNTS KUSTOMS

Michael "Horny Mike" Henry is an airbrush artist and designer whose nickname comes from his practice of putting 3-D horns on everything - from vehicles to helmets to the riding gear he wears. He is among the distinctive characters on the History Channel’s Counting Cars based at Count’s Kustoms in Las Vegas, where the boss, Danny Koker, relies on Mike to bring his ideas to 3-D fruition. Considering the far-flung projects the shop attracts, that’s saying a ton.

“I’m just a good old boy that just wants to make the world smile,” said Horny Mike. “If the smile comes from my artwork or they are just laughing at me, I'm fine with either.” 

Mike sees airbrushing as his core talent, the pursuit that started and continues to inspire his journey. “I have airbrushed every surface you can imagine; cars, bikes, walls, bodies, helmets, clothing. But as an artist I’m never satisfied and always need new challenges. Now my focus is on 3-D printing”

“I believe with 3-D there is no limit to what you can do, it’s all up to your imagination, and I have a very big imagination! I plan on showing the world what the next level of customization looks like.”  

Embracing this new 3-D challenge led Horny Mike to his most outrageous project yet: the Jaw Dropper, a two-wheeled monster like no other. “Nobody’s ever done something so outlandish: but functional! “ he said. Unveiled on a spring episode of Counting Cars, the rolling sculpture will accompany Mike to the Buffalo Chip and be shown around the venue. 

As a recent interviewer stated: “He’s got a very unique, outgoing personality that tends to bring a smile to your face. You can see he’s passionate about what he does.”

About the Shriners Children's Transportation Fund

Funds generated for the Shriners Children’s Transportation Fund program are used to transport children and their parent or guardian, free of charge to a Shriners Hospital for Children. Volunteers from local shrine organizations use specialized vans, small buses and automobiles and give freely of countless hours of their time providing transportation to and from doctor’s visits. One very important mode of transportation this fund pays for are the life-saving med-flights transporting children from all over the world to a Shriners Hospital when their life is in the balance. These specialized med-flights cost tens of thousands of dollars, but when a child’s life hangs in the balance, money is no object. Parents of injured children admitted to a Shriners Hospital for Children do not see a single bill for transportation provided through this fund.

MEET CRIS SOMMER SIMMONS

MOTORCYCLE HALL OF FAMER

Cris has enjoyed a lifetime love affair with two wheels. An eager passenger on her stepfather’s motorcycle at age 9, she got her first motorcycle (a Yamaha Twin jet 100) at 14, her first Harley at age 19 and has been riding ever since.  She was a longtime member of the Women’s International Motorcycle Association and in 1984, co-founded the 2nd Chapter of Women in the Wind. In 1985 Cris co-founded the world’s first motorcycle magazine for women called Harley Women. For over 5 years she acted as co-publisher and editor, often riding her motorcycle across the country to find the stories. On one such ride in 1989 she met her husband-to-be, rocker and fellow motorcycle enthusiast, Doobie Brother Patrick Simmons.

For several years starting in the late ‘80s Cris appeared in countless national newspaper articles, radio and television talk shows as a representative and advocate of the growing number of women who rode their own motorcycles. In 1988, she was awarded an Honorary Lifetime membership to Women in The Wind. Cris is a 25 year AMA member, a Lifetime HOG member as well as a Motor Maid and a member of the Antique Motorcycle Club of America. In 1990, she was honored as a pioneering woman motorcyclist in the American Motorcycle Associations’ Women In Motorcycling exhibit.

After selling her interest in Harley Women, Cris began a 15-year stint as a freelance motorcycle journalist, writing extensively for several magazines in the U.S., including American Iron, Motorcycle Collector, Iron Works, Easyriders, V-Twin, as well as magazines in Japan, Spain and in Australia.  Cris penned her own column for over 12 years in the popular Japanese Harley magazine Hot Bike Japan and is currently the women’s editor for American Iron magazine. She also speaks about women in motorcycling at events around the country.

In 1994, Cris wrote and self-published the award winning children’s motorcycle book Patrick Wants to Ride, for which she was honored with the AMA’s Brighter Image MVP Award.

Then, in 1995, Cris was one of 4 women featured in an original documentary on women motorcyclists for Turner Broadcasting called Biker Women.

In 2003, she was proud to be inducted into the National Motorcycle Hall of Fame in Anamosa Iowa and the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation Motorcycle Hall of Fame in Westerville, Ohio. In 2008 she was inducted into the Sturgis Motorcycle Hall of Fame.

In July of 2009, she released the popular book ‘The American Motorcycle Girls 1900-1950” (which is still one of the top selling motorcycle history books.).  Later that year Cycle Source Magazine named Cris the “Motorcycling Woman of the Year” for 2009.  

In Sept. of 2010, Cris rode her 1915 Harley-Davidson, Effie, 3,200 miles in the pre-1916 motorcycle cross country Motorcycle Cannonball. The grueling 16-day endurance ride started in Kitty Hawk, NC and ended up in Santa Monica, CA. Out of the 45 riders entered, she was one of only two women registered, and the only American woman rider. She made it all the way to Santa Monica and took 20th place.

In March of 2011, Cris released The Cannonball Diary, a book about her journey riding Effie across the country.

In the Fall of 2013 Cris and her husband Pat rode their 1914 and 1915 Harley-Davidsons 1,000 miles from Sturgis, SD to Milwaukee, WI to celebrate the 110th Anniversary of Harley-Davidson.

In 2014 the pair also rode the 4,100 mile pre-1937 Motorcycle Cannonball on their 1934 and 1929 Harley-Davidsons. Again in 2016, they both rode the Motorcycle Cannonball again, on their 1914 and 1915 H-Ds from Atlantic City, NJ to San Diego, CA.  The pair are also looking forward to the 2018 Motorcycle Cannonball, (on the same early bikes), riding from Portland, Maine to Portland, Oregon.
